. wayne lapierre, the lead of the nra of course is vivid over this and counterattacks. >> he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restaurants, homes and telling them what food to eat, they sure don't tell them what self-defense fire arms to own, and he can't buy america. he is so reckless in terms of his comments on this whole gun issue. >> cenk: what i love is when political people tell us american people want this or that. let's look at the polls. 88% support background checks so wayne lapierre, you are totally wrong. american people want background checks. among gun owners 85% support background checks. they are not with you, they are against you, wayne lapierre. all right. now it's of course not just bloomberg who is opposed to wayne lapierre, there is now other groups that are also targeting this issue if you will, and there's a new ad out by ultraviolet and they are an interesting group. let me show you. >> about 2:00 in the morning was when he came in and he shot my daughter. >>
of his own money for backing candidates who support gun control across the country. wayne lapierre from the nra says he is insane. look who is talking about being insane. all of that and more on current tv. bp. >> broadcasting across the nation, on your radio, and on current tv this is "the bill press show." >> bill: winter is over. spring is here. so now it's snowing in washington, d.c. what the hell is going on? what do you say? hello, everybody. great to see you this monday morning, this monday november -- november? where did that come from? >> feels like it. >> let's start over again. yeah, feels like it. looks like it. this march 25th here, we are coming to you live from our smelly nation's capitol -- that snowy nation's capitol. the storm made it to the east coast, snowing up and down the east coast. doesn't look like it's going to stay around very long. it's kind of wet, but it's going away but it's a mess and the roads are a mess this morning. great to see you wherever you happen to be in this great land of ours. we are coming to you on you
. they will not relent. they will go forward. >> the nra. >> same way. >> wayne lapierre has driven this cane now since aurora when he came on before and since sandy hook. he has continued to do it. here's the thing about lapierre though. he has flip-flopped on these key issues. take background checks. here's what he said in 1999 about background checks. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show. no loopholes anywhere for anyone. we do not, because the fact is the law right now is a failure the way it's working. the fact is that you have 76,000 some people that have been denied under the present law. only 44 were prosecuted. you're letting them go. they are walking the street. >> absolutely shameless. also, wayne lapierre, said previously that schools should be gun-free zones. now he said everyone in the school should be armed. the man does any u-turn that suit him, and yet he's winning this war in washington. why is he winning it? why does the nra continue to wield this power? i've got a tweet here from ted nugent. ask michael
. >> that is wayne lapierre head of the nra. this guy he was referring to is new york mayor mike bloomberg. here with us now is democratic senator from pennsylvania and member of the foreign relations committee, senator bob casey and former governor of pennsylvania, msnbc political analyst and co-chair of fix the debt campaign, governor ed rendell. you guys, pennsylvania. huge state. huge sprawling state. filled with sports people, hunters, gun owners, the vast majority of them responsible. where are you on what wayne lapierre said? >> well, we have a million hunters in the state. as ed knows, it's a big part of our culture and pennsylvania. after newtown i spent a lot of time thinking what happened there and i made a pretty substantial shift in my position. i think we should have not only a vote but pass some of the measures we have been talking about, the assault weapons ban, the magazine clip legislation, if we can get to that, and the background checks. there could be others but those are the three main ones. even if it's only done by way of amendment when we get to the legislation itself. >
gun owners. >> already supported background checks. >> wayne lapierre greed with that back in the 1990s. he was one of 85% in the 1990s until, i guess the gun manufacturers told him to change his position. >> right. >> okay. >> right. now he parades around with this clown show literally say if they take the rapist gun from the rapist, they will come after your gun. >> if we scream rapists from getting guns and doing a background check to see if they have been a rapist or felon, we are somehow violating other americans' rights? that's just a lie. >> here is eugene robinson what he writes in "the washington pos post". the worst way to respond to the shocking massacre in newtown, connecticut, would be to let political self-interests stand in the way of meaningful action. the parents of those 20 slain children deserve a vote on the assault weapons ban. the families of 30,000 americans who will be killed by gunfire this year deserve a vote. bringing the measure to the floor of both the senate and the house is the least congress can do. we all know what is happening here. senate democrats fa
the nra. here is what wayne lapierre said this week. >> he is going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people, and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to impose his will on the public. they don't want him telling them what to food to eat, and he can't buy america. >> michael: that's because it is already in the pocket of the nra, and yet the gun group just keeps pushing its luck. the nra is actually making robo calls and sending postcards to newtown families. >> your state senator will play a key role in determining whether the connecticut general assembly will pass legislation restricting your gun rights. this would impose a gun rash rashening scheme and imposing gun legislation. >> michael: so they can actually calling families of nowtown, talk about not having the common touch. joining me now john rosenthal. john welcome back into "the war room." >> thank you. >> michael: isn't it ironic that wayne lapierre says bloomberg can't buy the american public? >> it sure is. the ben factors and the uniquely dominating gun indust
to wayne lapierre of the nra. right now the nra is the only organization or voice that has stood up and said precisely what the solution is, and it is, by the way, in place and author of the public schools in this country. it needs to be in wondered%. senate majority leader harry reid says the assault weapons ban had fewer, as he put it -- this is his language, fewer than 40 votes. fifty-one and need for passage and 60 to end closure. fifty-three democrats in the senate and two independents to vote with the democrats. those senators obviously are bucking the democratic party and the. it is why he did the smart and pragmatic thing which is not even move this thing into the package that he will bring before the senate for a vote. by the way, these senators are the ones up for reelection next year in tossup states. there are senators like mark pryor, mary landreau, k hagen, brockovich, tim johnson of south dakota. left virginia is retiring, but the race there is competitive, and the democratic candidate, whoever your she may be, does not need a feinstein votes any around their necks. a
. they are financing the nra. that means there is more money now for wayne lapierre. >> financing the republicans and a few of the weasely democrats. >> what's the answer, michael? >> there is only one answer. >> what is the alternative to the nra to stand up, well funded, powerful and to do to the pro gun rights lobby what they do to democrats now and make them cow in fear. >> myself and a few hundred thousand americans this saturday night are going to get together in our living rooms, invite friends and family over and have this virtual discussion on the internet. we are going to watch "bowling for columbine" and we are going to organize this grassroots. that's all i can say. i'm tired of sitting around. i haven't sat around. i have dealt with the issue since columbine. >> what are we waiting for? the next mass shooting? the next movie theater? school? >> i would ask that to harry reid. if you could get him on i would say, how many more sandy hooks before you would not stand in front of a microphone. >> come on the show, harry reid. i have invited senator reid for two years. >> let's kill anoth
know wayne lapierre well and how they work as an organization. today we hear the nra is [ inaudible ] over the new gun control law, actually taking legal action to try to prevent them bringing in laws which make new york state safer from gun violence. what is your reaction to that? >> well, piers, in this country, laws have to abide by the constitution of the state that they're enacted in as well as under the federal constitution, and if one has a cause of action, the place to settle those concerns are in the courts. that's not just our system. that's the british system as well. i'm sure you're aware of that. that's why we settle those debates in the courts and not out on the street. >> piers, you know, there's a terrible irony that the nra is going after the state of new york for passing gun laws. they want to use the courts to try to protect themselves at the same time they push this law to immunize them from being held accountable by others. they want to use the court to protect themselves but don't want the consumers, the public, or cities to be able to use the courts to hold ne
city mayor, michael bloomberg and nra ceo wayne lapierre. if that is not must-see television, i do not know what is. this is this sunday on "meet the press." coming up, merriam webster defines the addiction as the compulsive need for and use of a habit-forming substance. so when scientists are literally altering the physical shape of salt, what chance does an addict stand? we will examine the national jonesing for junk food when author michael moss joins us just ahead. the only thing we'd ever grown together was a record collection. no. there was that fuzzy stuff on the gouda. [ both ] ugh! when it came to our plants... we were so confused. how much is too much water? too little? until we got miracle-gro moisture control. it does what basic soils don't by absorbing more water, so it's there when plants need it. yeah, they're bigger and more beautiful. guaranteed. in pots. in the ground. in a ukulele. are you kidding me? that was my idea. with the right soil... everyone grows with miracle-gro. to prove to you that aleve is the better choice for him, he's agreed to give it up. that's
% of the american people. you cannot make an argument -- unless you are head of the nra, wayne lapierre. you cannot make an argument against background checks being universal every single gun purchase, in fact, as recently as 2009, the nra supported universal background checks. even they know it's a good idea. so they gets like 75, 80%. the latest poll that we have seen on gun safety measures. 57% of the american people support the assault weapons ban. again, which is the toughest one? we knew that. dianne feinstein did that when she crafted this legislation. very skillfully crafted this legislation to eliminate some 150 something weapons so the people know what's covered and what's not covered. of course, the gun manufacturers don't like the bill. because the gun manufacturers don't, the nra doesn't. but there is a chance we can get it through the senate. we found out yesterday, not only will we not get it through the senate. we won't even have a vote on it. harry reid yesterday saying, oh no, no, no. i am not even going to allow them this come to the floor becaus
